A military assault on Rothenburg ob der Tauber

Rothenburg ob der Tauber is a walled medieval wonder located on the Romantic Road in the Franconian part of Bavaria. It's also a great place to sample local beers and hike out to the legendary brewery gem in Spielbach.

Landwehr-Bräu Hell on tap

Landwehr-Bräu Hell is a malt forward golden brew with a grainy palate and lingering semi-dry finish. On tap at the Landwehr am Turm in Rothenburg ob der Tauber.

Landwehr-Bräu Toppler Pils on tap

Landwehr-Bräu Toppler Pils is another Helles in disguise of a Pils, not untypical in Franconia. I found their Edel oddly more hoppy in flavor if not the nose. I suggest their Altfränkisch Dunkel but if you must drink a lighter color beer, I'd still with the Helles.

Landwehr-Bräu Altfränkisch Dunkel on tap

Landwehr-Bräu Altfränkisch is a classic example of the style with a balanced palate and semi-dry lingering finish

Landwehr-Bräu Kellerbier on tap

Landwehr-Bräu Kellerbier is a low carbonation malt forward beer with a touch of honey but the finish is a tad sticky.

Landwehr-Bräu Edel on tap

Landwehr-Bräu Edel is lower in alcohol than most Exports and though hoppier than many, the finish is a notch stickier.
